Myanmar's Suu Kyi gets 18 months under house arrest
YANGON (AFP) – Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to three years' jail and hard labour by a Myanmar court Tuesday, but the head of the ruling junta commuted the punishment to 18 months' house arrest, a minister said.
The court sentenced her on charges of breaching the terms of her house arrest after a bizarre incident in which an American man, John Yettaw, swam to her lakeside house in May, an AFP correspondent in court said.
But Home Affairs minister General Maung Oo said outside the court that military ruler Than Shwe had signed a special order suspending the sentence and ordered that Suu Kyi should spend 18 months under house arrest.
